7/13/2017 We had reservations at Merriman's in Koloa. To get there, we drove through the Tunnel of Trees. So, that is basically trees on both sides of the road that hang over the road about 100-150 feet overhead. Merriman's is in a small shopping plaza....More

A very well appointed second floor dining room exudes the feeling of a Hawaiian plantation house. An excellent menu and superb sevice make Merriman's a must visit. One of the specials of the night we visited was excellent fried chicken. I would highly recommend it.

Yes but agree the top level is more fine dining and the children would be better suited to the lower levels. This was a lovely restaurant.
